Tempranillo has its historical heart in Spain. Grown in almost every region in Spain, tempranillo is perhaps best known as the grape of Rioja. Tempranillo, while fruit forward and supple, is a grape that has a particular affinity to oak. If you enjoy some oak-driven character such as vanilla and toast in your red wines these are for you. Enjoy with any read meat or hearty mushroom dishes, or make like the Riojans and pair with grilled or roasted lamb!
